Employer Information

A marketing internship’s purpose is to provide students with an experiential learning opportunity. By working, students are expected to learn, use and develop professional marketing knowledge and skills.

Good internship experiences allow the intern to assist with a variety of tasks within the firm. This provides two outstanding benefits. First, the employer has an opportunity to see the intern in action without having made a permanent employment commitment. This is a tremendous benefit to firms using the internship as a part of their recruitment and training program. Second, the intern benefits from the mentoring process experienced and gains a broader view of the business. The preparation of an internship moves the student toward acceptance of higher levels of responsibility.

The success of an internship is the result of a team effort between the employer, student, and faculty advisor.
